Attention all units, officer (getting) down. Constable Jarrod Singh of Toronto's Durham Regional Police Service was called to the scene of a fight Sunday night, CBC reports. He arrived to find eight people surrounding another person. Singh says he can see how someone mistook it for a fight; but the person in the center of the crowd was actually break dancing. It turns out the group were members of the University of Ontario Institute of Technology's dance troupe and were filming a music video.

The dancers thought they were about to be shut down when Singh showed up. Instead, after talking with the group for a bit, Singh says he "decided it was time to bust a move," the Global News reports. The results, according to the Ottawa Citizen, were "amazing." The Facebook video of Singh breaking it down with one of the dancers has been shared more than 800,000 times. This wasn't the constable's first rodeo; before joining the police, he was a member of his college's dance troupe, which once opened for rapper Rick Ross. (Read more uplifting news stories.)
